This is the day Janis Joplin died. And a week after Jerrys mother passed. He spent the rest of his life "going down the road feeling bad".
Subject: great set, lousy show
The Dead played first that night, and were wonderful. The threesome of Cold Rain, China Cat and I know you rider were off the charts. I particularly like how high in the mix Phil's bass is. The Airplane were mediocre that night, with Marty Balin singing out "I need a new band" after the set, and Quicksilver played with horns! Not a great show like 4/15/70, but a great set by the Dead. No one around me that night had any idea Janis Joplin had died. And contrary to the fanciful musings of Mr. Olson, I certainly didn't see any garbage pails of lsd. If I had I wouldn't have been insane enough to drink 6 dixie cups.
Subject: Steal Your Face Picture Disc
Back in the late 80's I bought a Steal Your Face Picture Disc, otherwise unmarked. Thanks to this site I know that this is the show.
This has always been my favorite Dead recording (maybe second to Maples Pavillion (72, 73, or 74). Jerry using the wah wah, and Phil's bass sound great. My friend use to call the bridge section of Uncle John's Band Phil's trip. ah old times
Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" October 4, 1970, at the Winterland Arena, San Francisco CA, U.S.A.
Super 70' Soundboard!
A "Must Have" show...
This show has always been one of my favorites through the last 39 years. I still have it on LP by Mammary Presents, or Productions...you could only fit about 30 minutes on an LP, so I never heard the whole show until I found it on the Archive.
I highly recommend adding this show to your 1970 GRATEFUL DEAD collection. This is a fantastic show, the GRATEFUL DEAD are in time, in tune, and incredible.
This is my favorite version of "China Cat Sunflower" into "I Know You Rider". Garcia's solo is magical, mystical, and mythological. The boys never performed it like this again...
"Sugar Magnolia" is sweet. Garcia works his Wah-Wah pedal like a sorcerer.
This is my second favorite version of "Sugar Magnolia" next to the one with Duane Allman on April 26, 1971 at the Fillmore East, NYC. I downloaded that show off the IA when you could. Here's where you can't download it anymore:
I love the "sound" of this show...KSAN did something right. Phil's sound is fat and funky.
This show was heavily bootlegged back in the day. In 1971 I remember the record shop next to the Fillmore East selling copies of this show on LP's for $15.
Without this show in your collection you cannot be taken seriously as an aficionado of the GRATEFUL DEAD.
One of the best versions of "Good Lovin'" I've ever heard. My favorite of all time.
Thank you Mr. Harvey Lubar, Mr. Tony Cortazo and D. Winters for all your hard work in improving the quality of the sound of this show and sharing it with all of us. Most of us wouldn't know you guys if you stood next to us, but we want you to know we are Grateful for your efforts. Thanks for keeping the music we love alive.

Subject: Geary Blvd Decision
I remember this concert very well. There were two of the infamous garbage cans full of electric koolaid that came out when the Dead began to play. I drank six dixie cups and that was all she wrote...
I'd left home for the first time for college and drove in from Stockton to see the Dead with new friends. Four of us in a black 63 beetle with no back seat.
The acid didn't take long to hit, and with the KQED tv cameras pointing at the audience with the lights up, it felt like the world was watching me freak out - which I did.
It was the only time a hallucinogen got the better of me. I sat in the bug on Geary Blvd outside of Winterland for two hours, realizing that life was going to be many years of pain, so why not end it right now, and shorten the process.
I didn't and never thought about suicide again.
I remember watching the poor souls come straggling out, huddling, clutching each other, in twos and threes, tripping their way into the San Francisco night. There must have been a couple hundred people who left before the end of the last set.
Subject: Phil's chops
Phil's vocals were pretty dominant back then. I started seeing them in the mid eighties and the audience had to beg the guy to sing something.
Great to hear. Compliments the rest of the band well.
No one yet has mentioned that this show actually took place THE day that Janis Joplin died....just alil history...TIGHT show. Sign this to get dead soundboards back for download: http://www.petitiononline.com/mod_perl/petition-sign.cgi?gdm
Subject: a kickin' set
Brokedown Palace blows this thing away.
Subject: Great show, but be apprised....
This was the first time I saw the Dead and it still stands as one of their best. You should know that this was one of the rare quadrophonic broadcast experiments of the day. That means that two stations, KSAN and KQED each broadcast half of the show. What you are getting here is only half of the mix. An interesting take, but ultimately unsatisfyingly incomplete. Download it to hear Weir and Lesh's vocals upfront. Kind of like the Beatles' mid 60s albums (Revolver)with that weird, radical stereo mix.
Listen to the power and energy in this set. The Airplane and Quicksilver were to follow so they had only an hour and change to get it all in. (Or blow the other bands away)!!
